Esquire Network takes a trip back through time for its second scripted show, “Beowulf,” a drama based on the Old English poem of the same name. William Hurt, Joanne Whalley, Ed Speleers and more appear in the series as the eponymous Beowulf (Kieran Bew), “an exceptional and intelligent warrior,” tries to live up to his reputation as a fearless hero.
According to the series official description,
The 13-episode, one hour drama will chronicle Beowulf’s return to his home Herot, to make peace with his past. Unwittingly in search of a cause to believe in and a community to fight for, Beowulf finds himself wrongly accused of murder and hunts down the true perpetrator to avenge the death of his fellow kinsmen. Beowulf becomes Herot’s tough but unconventional hero, responsible for upholding the law and protecting the town from danger. The last of a dying breed, Beowulf is a man capable of shaping the world around him by his actions and force of will. While this may seem like a familiar tale, Beowulf unearths the full story of the complicated, driven man behind the lore.
Premiering Saturday, January 23rd at 10pm EST on Esquire, “Beowulf” stars Kieran Bew as Beowulf; William Hurt as Hrothgar; Joanne Whalley as Rheda; Ed Speleers as Slean, Laura Donnelly as Elvina and David Ajala as Rate.
